Lyrics

Lullaby / Walking The Rails

Sleep my son, my fine one

You’ve had your fill of play

Rest your head now as the sun

Bids farewell to the day

 

Clutch your blanket to your chest

As I stoop and kiss your brow

And I sing you to your rest

Oh, sleep, my lovely, now

 

My son I’ll see you always

Your face round and bright

Laughing through the summer days

Your voice true and light

 

Heed, my son, these shining days

As they go marching by

‘Til you see their golden rays

Through your father’s eyes

 

Sleep, my son, my brave one

I sing you to your rest

Far beyond the waves, son

Where dwell the loved and the blest

 

I will see you always

Your face round and bright

Laughing through the summer days

Your voice true and light

 

I will mourn the shining days

As they go dreaming by

Golden days you’ll never see

Through your father’s eyes

 

Days, dear God, you’ll never see

Through your father’s eyes

 

So he walked the rails again
